Overall consumption of baby food fell by 6.5% between 2009 and 2015. Although the number of babies born has remained fairly stable, demand for milks has been held back by a rise in the proportion of mother’s breastfeeding and the duration of breastfeeding. Ethical consumption is increasingly important to Canadian consumers. Environmental and social awareness is having a growing impact on sub-trends, such as buying locally sourced products. 75% of consumers said that they have made an effort to buy local or Canadian-made products recently.
Overall, the Baby Food market has increased by just 9.9% in terms of value in 2015, while sales in volume terms have declined by 6.5%.
Baby milks account for 63.6% of value sales of baby food, well ahead of wet meals (24.2%)and cereals/finger foods (11.4%).
Nestlé continues to lead the market, although its share has fallen by around three percentage points since 2012 due to its almost total withdrawal from wet meals.
By 2021, the Canadian baby food market is forecast to achieve an increase sales by 25.6% compared with 2015, helped by a gradually increasing number of births.
